Considering Stan's request, Don contemplates his own future based on his recent past behavior, both professionally and personally. He has finally come to the realization of it being destructive and he makes a decision for himself and Megan which would get them away from many of Don's problems, such as Sally's revelation of his affair with Sylvia, and from Sylvia herself. Don's intent of how he will conduct his life is made public during a presentation to a potential lucrative new client, Hershey's. Ted and Peggy also come to decisions of their own with regard to their personal relationship, especially following a series of cat and mouse sexual games, where the role of cat and the role of mouse are not always well defined.

Trivia

When Don is approached about Hershey being a potential client, Don is puzzled at first and says Hershey doesn't advertise. This statement is true - until 1968, Hershey did not advertise. Founder Milton S Hershey thought the product was good enough on its own. It has been said that if he saw a discarded Hershey wrapper lying on the ground, he would rearrange it so that the label faced up. See more »

The skyline behind Peter's desk while he's on the phone clearly shows the Pan-Am building just a couple blocks away as if the office were still on Madison Ave. The Time Life building is not that close to the Pan-Am building. See more »

Quotes

Don Draper: I was an orphan. I grew up in Pennsylvania in a whorehouse. I read about Milton Hershey and his school in Coronet magazine or some other crap the girls left by the toilet. And I read that some orphans had a different life there. I could picture it. I dreamt of it. Of being wanted. Because the woman who was forced to raise me would look at me every day like she hoped I would disappear. Closest I got to feeling wanted was from a girl who made me go through her john's pockets while they screwed. ...

Excellent, engaging, endearing ending
3 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Creator Matthew Weiner gives us his best episode and it clearly shows us where all these greatly crafted characters and amazing actors have arrived after six solid seasons. Peggy and Ted relationship vs Don and Megan. Very different to be sure, connect in conflict and in pursuit of happiness in the vast loud chaos of life. Choices, feelings, heartbreaks and complicated realities are re-enacted to pure perfection. Elisabeth Moss and Jessica Pare embody the multi-level writing under Weiner's equally deft directing.

Don childhood finally takes an exquisite form in a fantasy vs reality meeting about chocolate and so much more.

The show ends wordlessly, when all is said and done perfectly. Profound, sad and so satisfied even if probably as unsettling as life itself.

So good I am afraid to watch season 7 as I do not see how one can possibly top this although I am happy to keep following the lives of these vivid (sometimes livid) people.
